i have been on the look out for a coffee table for months. this isn't my dream table but it is close enough for now. all this thrifting has made my innate cheapness even more extreme. i actually hemmed and hawed (and pondered over night) about spending $20 on this. in the end, i am glad i bought it. though the kids are driving me nuts with the jumping back and forth from the table to the couch. you'd think that we don't have a "no jumping on the furniture" rule in this house. luckily only minor injuries so far...
did you notice my new orange ruffled pillow? cute, right?
i made it using this tutorial. things i did different- sewed my ruffles to the pillow front before sewing the pillow cover together. also, i made the cover removable for washing because let's face it, with three kids in the house it is inevitable that it will need to be washed at some point!
i used a pillow form i already had and a 40% off coupon for the fabric so the total cost of the project was less than $4.
